    Urgent

    Hello everyone.

    This notice will be published on most trackers were pankkake was an active contributor: RED, OPS, DB9, PTP.

    We heard this morning that pankkake commited suicide on Tuesday. Of course we weren't aware of his intentions. His last words http://laurent.bachelier.name/notes-en.txt

    We do not share his ideas, but we also think it is important not to censor his last words.

    It's no secret that he didn't always see eye-to-eye with with REDacted's policies, but those disagreements appear insignificant compared with his passion for music and his dedication to sharing it for over a decade.

    A few days ago, he told us he created a DC++ hub to share music. It's now clear he meant this as a file sharing legacy of sorts.
    We believe it's important to share his collection as broadly as possible, therefore we offer anyone who wishes to do so to join us on his hub.
    pankkake was a keen collector of underground music in all shapes and forms; his library weighs about 10 TB.

    In his will, he asked that his computer be left on so that he can still seed from the grave, therefore it might be useful not to disable his account yet.

    R.I.P. pankkake

    This message was written by his friends on #french.

    Just copy and paste - I no way know this guy or his views, or had any interactions...

    To be fair - every single thread that popped up on Redacted, PTP, even Reddit was locked and deleted - since.....
    Well people took issue to him being a covid denier, KKK in his name, and there was a Nazi phrase hidden in his suicide letter - understandably so.

    Curiosity got me to Google a bit. If he was even a real person and did commit suicide, both of which one can be sceptical about given his online persona, his biggest flaw was getting into his head that he was somehow superior to other people and thus had free reign to treat them badly. As for the KKK bit and the Nazi phrases, pankkake is a slang term and the k's aren't interconnected so that's a stretch and someone referencing Nietzsche doesn't necessarily make them either Nazi sympathizers or French.

    Anyway, death brings an end to all conflict and so let the dead, both the good and bad rest in peace.

    Does he reference him?

    Anyways - people pointed out that this is listed in this suicide letter

    You can find it verbatim in the letter - it's just missing the word 'white'

    Forgive my ignorance as I only took the four years of advance math at university and don't have a post graduate degree or anything but without "white" then it's only 13 words and as such lacks the explicit racial overtones.
    Granted I understand that White supremist groups like QAnon and the Proud Boys like to sometimes communicate cryptically assumingly not to avoid censorship but rather because they haven't yet fully come to terms with their own latent homosexuality. Still I dunno 'bout you but if I was writing the last words that I would ever write on this Earth then I most surely would say exactly how I felt in clear undebatable explicit terms. Note to anon sorry but it's not looking good at this point about Messi, the little cunt.

    Just playing dead person advocate here but without the word "white", p.etc could just as easily been taking about African Americans or our Jewish brethren, both who have on more than one occasion referred to themselves as "our people".

    The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money

    I mean you can be his advocate - but people weren't basing it off one letter. Him claiming he was a time-traveling Nazi on forums and defending 'Nazi music' as he put it. His movie snatches on PTP speak for themselves...
